SpiceJet, an aviation company owned by the Sun Group of India, is one of the main low-cost carriers (LCC) in the country. This airline is a preferred choice of travellers as it is one of those flight carriers, which provide lowest airfare in the domestic category. The reason behind this is the continuous effort put in by the airline to keep up with the cut-throat competition prevalent in the domestic aviation market. This popular LCC is coming up with new ideas and strategies every day in order to ensure maximum profit and meet international standards in terms of services. In recent times, it has taken major steps in this direction, which are sure to prove beneficial for both travellers and the company.

As per industry reports, there may be some major changes in the strategies of the airline after the appointment of the new COO, which may have an effect on SpiceJet flight fares.
